omg ! My papaw used to take us kids ! I miss it (and him!). Took my oldest a few times, he couldnt believe all those lights in one place !! Too bad my little one cant see it. I remember laying in the back in the hatchback with blankets, waiting patiently (or maybe not so patiently ) for our car to get up where we could see !! Looking for what was new !! Oh i miss that !!
good times

i think it stopped when ashland started the lights down at the park. i remember going and looking in the window and there would be 50 people or more sometimes.it seemed like such a long drive from where we lived when i was young but it was no more than 10 minutes away

The people that lived there passed away so it was discontinued. The person that posted that the children didn't want to continue is accurate. Also part of the reason was due to cost.

Mr Weatherhold died and so did the tradition...His son and widow tried to decorate the next few years, but it tapered off...I remember traffic being backed up just to take a look....

I remember people parking in that little parking lot next door just to walk around the yard and to sit on Santas lap under the carport. Very nice back then. I tried to buy all of there stuff and keep it going just down the road but they would not sell.
